About Cato

CATO is a recognised driving force behind the entertainment industry in Australia. We specialise in location services for the film, TV, stills and events industries. Our focus is on delivering smart, seamless, cost-effective, safe and reliable services to ensure the success of your projects. We can help you continue to work safely through COVID-19 conditions and cover metropolitan and regional NSW, QLD, SA & the ACT.

Traffic Management

The safety of your staff and the general public are our top priority – unlicensed staff puts everyone at risk and makes you liable if the unthinkable happens. We pride ourselves on our strong relationships with the local NSW, ACT, Queensland and State Governments and are preapproved for Local Government Procurement.


We demand a higher level of service. We pay our staff above the award to ensure you get the quality of guards you expect and need on your project.

Unit Management

We have specialist Unit Managers for TVCs and long-form productions and will package together the elements required for your specific needs based on the size and scale of your production. We can cater for anything from four to 400 people.

COVID Safety & Cleaning

Safeguard your production against a COVID-19 outbreak in compliance with the Australian Government Department of Health guidelines. Our COVID-Safe services include risk assessment and implementation of mitigation strategies, such as COVID testing and COVID-Safe cleaning, before and during production by a Government-trained CATO COVID Safety Supervisor.

Safety & Stunts

The events, film and TV industries present unique and unusual work health and safety hazards to their workers and we know safe practice in a safe environment makes for an efficient event or production. Being vigilant, identifying potential hazards, and being aware of where we are, what we are doing, with what, and to who are a priority that needs to be managed by a professional with accreditation in the State we are working in. Safety is cost-effective in human terms, and economic terms too. It is a legal requirement to have a safety report completed for every production filmed in Australia.

Equipment Hire

We have the industry know-how to source whatever it is you need—if we don!t have it, we!ll get it — or provide you with someone who will. Daily, weekly and long-term rates are available on all hire items. We offer pick-up or delivery and can provide a trailer if you need it.
